Analyzes Negro Resentment

Fraternities Reduce Rush Restrictions

"The Negro riots in the North
are a result of the decades of hu-
miliationt and mistreatment the
white man has imposed upon the
Negro," Louis Lomax said Friday.
A noted Negro author and lec-
turer, Lomax stressed that much
of the Negro's discontentment has
arisen from pressures on him tc
conform to a "white, Protestant
middle class society."
Lomax has written several books
on Negro problems in recent years.
Among his works are "The Ne-
gro Re'volt," an analysis of the
civil rights issue; "When the Word
Is Given," a study of the Black
Muslim movement, and "The Re-''
luctant African," on Africa's emer-
gent rationalism.
Lomax cited schools In Har-
lem as an example of pressure
to conform to "white society." "A
child enters school in Harlem. A;
test is given to see if he is ready
to learn to read. He is shown a
picture of three residences - a'
tenement, a suburban house and a
mansion-and is tasked to name
the 'best one.'
"Of course, the child has never
been out of. the ghetto before,"
Lomax continued, "so he picks
the tenement. But we all know'
that the suburban house is the
'right' one. 'So the Negro child
is not taught to read for another
When the child is finally intro-
duced to reading,.he has no prep-
aration and naturally falls behind;
others who have been prepared,
Lomax said.
Cause Riots
"With 'social promotions,' suche
child gets through school, but
often a high school 'graduate' is,
practically unable to read or write.'

We are creating monsters in this
way. The riots are the result of
such mistreatment.
"Pressures on Negroes; to con-
form arise from our tendency tol
think in terms of color," Lomax
continued. "Our advertising, our
writing and even our thinking is.
constantly going on in a black-
white frame of reference. Once
this kind of thinking goes, many.
of our problems will go too. The
Negro must be given leeway and
not asked to accept arbitrary val-
ues forced on him by a society."
Lomax cited the work of the
Northern volunteers in Mississippi
as an example of helping the Ne-
gro live in a "white" society. At
the same time, he hit "the per-
formance of the FBI in Mississip-
pi-it has been a scandal.

"Procrastination and lack of ac-
tion have characterized FBI ef-
forts,"he said. "I could name the
killers of the three civil rights
workers right now if I wanted to,
and so could others. But the FBI'
has information against them and
is doing nothing. Ever since the
bodies of the workers were discov-
ered, we have had nothing but
silence from the White House anc,
the FBI.
"Other examples of FBI failures
are the cases of bombings in Mis-
sissippi. Twenty-six Negro church-
es and homes have been bombed in
Mississippi in recent years. How
many of the crimes has the FBI
solved? None."
Lomax also criticized FBI Direc-
tor J. Edgar Hoover for his state-
ments during the Senate civil
rights debate. "Here is one of the
most significant debates of the
century. And what does Hoover
do? Instead of making any con-
structive statements, he claims
that Communists are 'infiltrating'
the civil rights movement. He
could have said nothing worse at
the time."
"The effect of the present civil
rights struggle on America can be
compared to that of an anneal-
ing furnace on a bar of metal,"
Lomax said. "The result of the
battles taking place now will be
that Anierica, in the heat of battle.
in the process of discord in tlie
North, idealism in the South and
action on all fronts, will have her
imperfections hammered out. The
Negro will find a place in our so-
ciety through this annealing proc-
ess. It is the only avenue open
to us. Briefly, the battle is being
waged because my son will not
take from you what my father

"This fall's fraternity rush pro-
gram places substantially fewer re-
strictions on both rushees and
houses than the plans used in the
past few years, Lawrence Loss-
ing, '65, Interfraternity Council
president, commented recently.
Although some campus-wide
scheduling of functions has beer
maintained, the new plan is much
less detailed than the elaborate
system of restricting fraternities

employed last spring. Under that
plan, the time and nature of rush
activities were specified for a 12-
day period.
"Fraternities at the University
have gradually been moving to-
ward a less structured rush for the
past two years," Lossing remarked
"Detailed as it was, last spring's;
plan was considerably simpler thar
that of 1962."
Better Functions
Ht added that the new program
will give each fraternity a better

chance to hold rush functions that
are peculiarly suited to its own
"The difference in size, locatior
and personality among chapter,
makes it almost impossible to de-
vise a rigid, detailed rush struc-
fraternities," he said. "Moreover
I feel that it is helpful to give
the rushee greater freedom in se-
ture that is suited to all campus
lecting the rush activities that he
participates in."
This semester's rush officially
begins Sunday, Sept. 13. All fra-
ternities will be open between 2
and 5 and 7 and 10 p.m. that day.,
The open house hours for Mon-
day and Tuesday will be from 7
to 10 p.m. only.
During these times students arE
invited to visit fraternities to look
at the houses and get acquainted
with the members. After Tues-
day, ruhsees return to fraternitie
only by invitation, between 8 a.m.
and 9 p.m. This final time' re-
striction will be lifted on Thurs-
day, Sept. 24. Rushing will be
allowed for the duration of the
Bids Thursday
Fraternities will not be allowed
to offer bids before the first
Thursday of rush.
"We prohibit early bidding a
a consideration to both the rushee
and the houses," Lossing com-
mented. "Students and fraternitieE
need a reasonable period of time
to appraise each other without
the pressure of having to decide
on a bid."N
A mass rush meeting will be hele
at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9.
in the Union Ballroom. Lossing
John Feldkamp, advisor to frater-
nities, and Kelley Rea, IFC rusht
chairman, will be present to ex-
plain the details of the rush pro-
Information Program
Also, fraternity presidents wil?
visit each house in the quadrangle.,
for an information program be-
fore rush starts.
Students will have an opportuni-
ty to register for rush on the
Diag and in front of the Union
during the week before the rush
period begins.
"The purpose of having students
register is primarily to gain infor-
mation for our records," Lossing
said. 'In addition, fraternities use
